The Tenderness of Thieves

Author(s): Donna Freitas

Teen Fiction

Jane is ready for a fantastic summer. In fact, she's pretty sure the universe owes her one. This past winter, Jane was held at knifepoint during an armed robbery, and the spectre of that night still haunts her. A summer romance with one of the town bad boys - sexy Handel Davies, who takes her breath away and makes her feel like a bolder version of herself - seems like the universe's way of paying her back. But bad boys always have secrets - and Handel's secret just might shatter Jane completely.


In a suspense novel that marries psychological thriller with summer romance, Donna Freitas keeps readers on the edge of their seats as they swoon.
